Hmm …

… What Should We Do About Scandalous Artists? - WSJ. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Maybe we should just give up on the cult of the artist.


  1. I'm amused by the use of "we" in the headline, as if "we" need to make a choice collectively. I'd rather the moralists, judges, and would-be censors let me decide for myself.

  2. Yes, you're right. I hadn't noticed that. I guess I'm helped by the fact that I don't think we should assume that a person who does good work is necessarily a good person as well.
